Tiptree

Groups

Our friendly groups usually meet in informal settings, which is sometimes a member’s home. Groups can vary in size from 4 or 5 up to the mid 40’s - depending on the subject.

Group Organisers share their area of interest or knowledge with like-minded members; they are not necessarily experts, just enthusiasts who respond to the wishes of the group.

We are always looking to start new groups, so we welcome your ideas!

If you would like to start/lead a group, please contact the Group Co-ordinator.

All members are invited to attend any groups which interest them, subject to availability of places. Occasionally a group will have a waiting list, as the number that can be accommodated may be limited by the size of the venue or the nature of the activities. It is essential, therefore, to contact the Group leader or Group Co-ordinator in advance.

Please show your membership card when joining a group

A list of our groups is given below. Most groups meet once a month, some twice, and a few more frequently. Just click on the name of any group for a brief description of its activities.

If you would like to join a group, ask for more information or suggest new ideas, please click on the 'Blue bird' at the top right-hand side of the individual group page.

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST BE A FULLY PAID UP MEMBER OF TIPTREE U3A BEFORE YOU CAN ATTEND AN INTEREST GROUP
